BREAK THE CHAINS OF PRIOR AUTHORIZATION
The AMA survey validated what we’ve heard from clients for years: healthcare professionals are strained by this process, and Telluride Regional Medical Center was no exception.
For too long, their prior authorization responsibility was spread across the organization—operations managers, medical assistants and physicians alike handled PAs. It made for a disjointed and disorganized system that hurt the entire organization. They attempted to centralize the process by entrusting it to several tenured employees. When many of them left, Telluride had a serious problem.
